of washington, d.c. it's a neat issue to bring liberals and conservatives together. because conservatives get a bad wrap because i believe in state's rights, yeah, that means you're a racist. that's the way -- that's their mentality. but i like the last paragraph of the declaration of independence because they talk about free and independent states as if they were countries -- they emphasize that in the declaration. so so this is what will have to happen is it might really happen when there's chaos. in detroit and things like that. is there a government in detroit right now? i mean, is there a police force? oh, yeah, there's a burglar outside of my house. i think i'll call the police. it's over with. so when the federal government can't respond because the money doesn't work and they can't pay the military and the troops come home, that's the way the soviet system collapsed. if that's the case, there's going be -- there's hundreds of times right now that our local governments, cities, townships, and states are writing actual laws to nullify, you know, when it comes to obamacare and these othe

quality care. i was in washington -- >> we have your question. that both henry and nina have raised about government .ntervention there is a continuum here. you can never disengage the healthcare care system from the political system. the issue is that the more buying power we give to the government, the more influential it becomes and the greater its capacity to make changes that may be good and may not be good. an example is the medicare prescription drug benefit. if the government directly provided insurance are prescription drugs, it would have a lot more direct buying power for those prescription drugs. it could make very direct determinations about which drugs could not be purchased. instead, we have a system where the government subsidizes a private marketplace. clearly, there is still a potential for it to interfere and intervene. at least the disconnection or distribution across the private and public sectors mitigates to in fact, we are all incomplete agreement that there unpredictable effects in general. >> i would like to say a word about the affordable care act is it was misr
